Event Description

Please -anybody reading this and coming- sign-up and/or RSVP!


...we'll be meeting exactly where described on the map above, and we'll be warming up at the nearby WW2 battery; where we'll spend most of the time; try to show up not later than 7:30.

Session description:

This training provides a healthy and motivated atmosphere for existing practitioners to progress their parkour, and to do this in a safe, peer-reviewed, no-BS and no-sitting around way. :)

The goal of these sessions is to enhance the effectiveness of our parkour practice, through advancements in precision, speed, control, power, stamina, resistance, determination and confidence. The mean to achieve this, will be perfecting short combinations of basic movements through intense repetitions in order to ultimately trigger instinctive reactions and reduce transition time.

The more experienced practitioners will set a positive example by focusing on a thorough warm up, dynamic stretching, cardio-vascular resistance and precise repetition of movement. There will be no showing off, rather humbly passing on of knowledge, in a group effort to keep up the pace of the drills and advance together. Also we will try to maintain our focus on uninterrupted motion from drill start to finish (A-to-B). All while keeping safety as paramount.

While there may be different physical or technical skill levels represented at these sessions, everyone will keep an eye out for anybody needing advice or encouragement. Absolute novices, with no previous experience in group training of parkour or other physical disciplines, are advised to consider first beginning with a Basic Training (Sundays).

The perception that parkour practice is fun, yet being "a discipline, not a game" will be tangible and is required.

Everybody pls. check this frequently asked questions about liability.

If the group gets too big, like last Friday, we might very well break off and work in different sub-groups.

Please try to focus on either (or more than one) of these:
- push your progression to increase amplitude, precision, speed and confidence of movement;
- try to automatize reactions through (again) precision, repetitions (x5 minimum), and steady pace;
- condition the body through measured, controlled, yet powerful movement.

Progress (aka: baby-steps) & Progression (aka: advance your movement, condition and -lastly!- skills)...

Foggy, windy and chilly (as in 55F)...
Welcome to Summery San Francisco!

Keep moving to stay warm, and -as a general rule- a shut mouth helps preventing pain and inflammation of the pharynx, known as Pharyngitis.
